Charlize Theron vs. Noomi Rapace: who looked hotter at the ‘Prometheus’ premiere?

I had too much to say about the photos from the UK premiere of Prometheus, so I had to split these up into two posts. One post devoted solely to my love, my Forever Dong-bot Michael Fassbender. Another post – this post – devoted to fashion and “other”. It seems like everybody but Idris Elba came out for the premiere. Charlize Theron was by far the most-photographed, although – as I said previously – Charlize is NOT the lead of Prometheus. Her part is supporting – Noomi Rapace plays the lead character, but the photographers didn’t lovingly photograph Noomi’s every movement on the (blue!) carpet.

As for fashion… Charlize wore this great little Christian Dior dress. It’s a great color for her, and her hair and makeup look pretty flawless. Tiny little complaints: I think the bust of the dress is too tight on her or something, because there’s something awkward going on there. And I hate the shoes. Noomi wore Valentino, and she actually put some effort into looking glamorous for her big premiere. I think it works. Good (or improved) hair, good makeup, some diamond earrings and a great black gown. Yes, the gown is a bit sheer, but it’s not like she’s wandering around London in her drawers.

I’m also including a small hint of Fassy (sigh…), Guy Pearce (gorgeous), Logan Marshall-Green (meh) and Salma Hayek, who was there for some reason. It just occurred to me that Salma is probably Fassy’s type (dark with a sweetshop). It also just occurred to me that Salma + Fassy = one of the best p0rns ever. Jesus, I need a cigarette after that visual.

    Noomi wins. She looks radiant. She’s not too thin and has an athletic figure. Just lovely. I like her hair and earrings.

    Charlize always looks lovely, but the shoes are awful and the the top of the dress is giving her a muffin top.

    • Aiobhan says:

      ITA! Noomi wins by far but I am biased though cause I have a strong girl crush on her. I love the photo of her and Fassy standing next to one another; they look cute together. Two of my favorite working actors standing next to one another is too much;)

      Charlize looks amazing but the shoes are awful and the hair needs to be pulled off of her beautiful face.

      Logan looks cute in his Sunday church suit.

      • bros says:

        that dress charlize is wearing is so gross and cheap looking. it looks like she got the shoes and the dress at forever 21.

      • Aiobhan says:

        @bros lol. I wish I could find that at Forever 21 I would be heading to the next mall asap. But on second glance the shoes do look cheap.

  2. Cherry says:

    Is Guy Pierce wearing his suit inside out?

    • brin says:

      LOL…but he’s still cute!

    • Carolyn says:

      Guy Pearce is awesome (unashamedly Aussie patriotic!) and he can act too. I am hyperventilating to see this movie. Love me an Alien prequel. That it has Fassy, Charlize & Guy in it is almost too overwhelming. At last…a movie that doesn’t rely on who’s hooking up with who offset to generate PR interest 🙂

      • original almond says:

        Agreed. I’ve been waiting for so long to see this movie and it’s kept me on the edge of my seat with the promo materials that now I’m so ridiculously excited to finally go watch it tonight.

      • ahoyhoy says:

        Thank you Australia, for giving us Guy Pearce! I had such a crush on him after “L.A. Confidential”, and the man’s hot hasn’t faded!

  3. lucy2 says:

    I think that answer is always Charlize, but Noomi looks great too. I really like her dress.

    • mathpint says:

      Yeah, in terms of hotness, gotta give it to Charlize always. But for who looked more together and classy here, Noomi all the way.

  4. brin says:

    They both look lovely. Charlize has been looking super gorgeous lately…must be that new mommy glow!

  5. says:

    Charlize’s dress is so tight that it is making what little back fat she might have spill out of her dress. Horrible. Even her shoes look too tight!

    But her makeup and hair are gorgeous, and very natural looking.

    Selma is a matchy-matchy crap fest. Is she wearing a pair of shiny hose?

    • Steph S. says:

      That’s exactly what I was wondering…looks like she’s wearing hideous nude nylons.

  6. katie says:

    They both look fabulous. Charlize is always gorgeous, but I do hate her shoes. Noomi is incredibly beautiful, especially when she smiles. Thankfully neither of them seem to stray into try hard territory too often.
    In other news, Salma’s face looks hard and not very pretty in that photo.

  7. marie says:

    Noomi looks better, whatever is going on with the top of Charlize’s dress is not a good look on anybody but the color works well for her.

    And I’m not a fan of anything happening with Salma in that picture..

  8. amurph says:

    I prefer Noomi for this, even though I wish the dress wasn’t sheer. What’s with this huge fashion trend of sheer-everything? I thought we were supposed to ooh and aww the dress, not fixate on how poor their bodysuit/underwear works with it.

    I’d like Charlize’s dress if it was longer and not so tight it makes her look stuffed into it.

  9. Saskia says:

    What the HECK is Salma Hayek wearing? That dress is awwwwwful and does her bangin’ figure NO FAVORS. Doesn’t anybody love her enough to tell her that you can’t wear structured shoulders if you’re petite with a giant rack? She looks so top heavy, like she might tip over at any moment. That crusty bedazzled business looks like a sparkly fungal infection, the length is awkwardly stumpifying her legs, and those matronly shoes are just making it worse. And why in the world are shiny pantyhose becoming a thing again?

    I need to go lie down. Salma’s giving me anxiety.

  10. RN says:

    Selma looks like a stuffed sausage, rolled in glitter.

    • Well spotted says:

      Sorry, can’t help it, too freaking funny! hahahahah…’re wicked!!!

    • ZenB!tch says:

      So do her legs in those shiny hose. Eww! Salma is the worst followed by the dude in the gray suit but I hate lighter suits.

  11. Gia says:

    Please. Charlize. Noomi does look pretty though.

  12. toto says:

    well , as i said it in the other thread,
    its weird how noomi looks more attractive than Charlene.
    i mean come-on to have her face near Charlene and manage to pull eyes on her ..she must be seductive in real.

    charlize is very beautiful woman and sweet..but Cold

  13. Milena says:

    The hanging under arm flesh on pic #2 is scary!

  14. Pseudoangie says:

    I actually think that Charlize’s whole ensemble reads as very 90s. A rare miss for her to me.

  15. Chris says:

    Charlize looks stunning and such a perfect dress for Prometheus. It looks like the sky and stars.

    Noomi looks the best I’ve ever seen her. Very pretty.

    • Rhea says:

      I second you!

    • Mouse says:

      Spot on. I think she picked a great dress for the premiere. Noomi looks good too, but if anyone else wore the same dress we’d be blasting them for being able to see the undergarments.

  16. LittleDeadGirl says:

    When I saw this title I thought Charlize all the way but I hate the dress. I like the color but it looks cheap and sparkly and something you’d buy for about 40 bucks. Noomi looks amazing in the dress and I love her hair.

  17. Ilona says:

    Logan is hot and a year older than Fassbender, can’t believe it. Fassdong looks so much older than him.

  18. original almond says:

    Good god, Charlize is so tall and gorgeous. But the dress does weird things to her torso unfortunately.
    Noomi looks lovely though I’d say the skirt of the dress is a bit too sheer.
    As for Guy, I’d like to sit him down for an engaging “literary conversation”.

  19. T.C. says:

    Charlize looked best but Noomi wasn’t far behind. Guy is looking hot. Keep Selma and Fassy apart for now. She needs to get in line behind me. 🙂

  20. Lilo says:

    Sometimes you can have it all. Am I right Charlize?

  21. Chatcat says:

    Charlize is absolutely stunning. Noomi is sultry…Logan hot hot hot and of course Fass is my bad boy fantasy weekend, although I am not dark skinned as he seems to gravitate too, I am more Irish then he is for God’s sake, but a woman can still hope huh?

  22. lafairy says:

    Charlize is way too gorgeous to be tirred down by a rare miss, even is this outfit is not her best, she looks way more beautiful than naomi and I think it’s not even fair to compare them. Naomi looks pretty here though, but Charlize is a goddess, pure beauty, maybe the most beautiful actress in HW now.

    So winners:
    best outfit: Naomi
    Amazing beauty: Charlize

  23. lafairy says:

    Also Charlize and Naomi seem uncomfortable with each other on these pics, like they don’t get along or something.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      After reading something about Noomi recently, I think she is the one Charlize was talking about when she was dissing “method” people.

  24. Maritza says:

    Charlize by far looks the best, Noomi’s boobs look deflated in that dress. Salma’s dress does not do her justice.

  25. Lindy says:

    Noomi looks elegant and amazing here! WTF is that lavender nonsense S H is wearing?

  26. Joy says:

    There’s something about the bottom of Charlize’s dress that gives it a cheap prom feeling for me. She’s gorgeous but that dress does nothing for her.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      +1. Love her but that dress looks straight out of the Macy’s Junior dept.

  27. Agnes says:

    love the color and fabric of charlize’s dress, but the cut on the bottom is sort of weird.

  28. annaloo. says:

    Put a pink wig on Salma Hayek and that is GLIMMER from the She-Ra cartoons.

  29. LucyOriginal says:

    We can’t compare Noomi with Charlize. CHarlize can make a Marchesa gown work, imagine this Dior?! That being said, Noomi looks gorgeous.

  30. bns says:

    Who cares about what they’re wearing? Charlize, Noomi, Fassy, Salma, Guy. They’re all hot.

  31. Hannah says:

    I heart Noomi!

  32. Tiegs says:

    I’m not loving her dress, but there’s no way Charlize and Noomi are in the same league, beauty wise.

    And the reason Charlize is being pushed as the ‘star’ of the film and doing way more promotion for it, is because she’s the A-list Oscar winner, while Noomie is that cool chick from The Dragon Tattoo.

  33. LucyOriginal says:

    Noomi is a chameleon isn’t she? Loved her in the girl with the dragon tattoo! I could barely recognized her in the Prometheus premiere.

  34. ahoyhoy says:

    Noomi looks so perfect as is, but I would like her gown more if it were the color of Charlize’s. I think brunettes look amazing in a strong color.
    But that’s just a personal preference; I just think black is boring.

    Regardless, Noomi has hit this out of the park. Effortless and natural. This is supposed to be her big movie for the American market, so I hope it’s as fantastic as it looks. Noomi deserves all the attention she can get for her work.

  35. Poppy says:

    *Sigh* When will Salma learn that big boobs + high neck makes a boob sausage that is never flattering!

    Look, I have the same problem, being somewhat overly ‘blessed’ in that area. But seriously, v-necks good, turtle necks bad!

    Noomi looks lovely, I find her endlessly fascinating! I want to be her when I grow up. Charlize looks nice, she’d look good in a bin bag, but it’s a tiny bit disco for me (and I say this as a devoted sequin fan).

  36. spinner says:

    Charlize is so gorgeous. I watched her & Keanu Reeves in Devil’s Advocate last night & they were great together. I’d forgotten what a good movie that was.

  37. Claire says:

    The movie is visually gorgeous, the acting is perfect from the five leads, the problems come more from the script, in the attempt to reconcile the desire to build a new mythology with the old “Alien” one. But really despite the (strong) storyline flaws, it’s great to watch. Very ambitious.

  38. Navy Blue says:

    Rapace’s gown is very elegant. Love it. But it’s not fair because no one is hotter than Charlize especially when she gives an A+ look like she did st this premiere. That face and that color on her…there are no words. Ofcourse most girls will pick Noomi because she’s not a threatening beauty like Charlize.

    Also I told you she didn’t plastic surgery her face to death Kaiser. She was just wearing too much glossy makeup earlier this year. See how much more beautiful and natural looking her face is when she wears less makeup and neutral colors on her face?

  39. G says:

    Charilize makes everyone else look like they are trying too hard.

    Is Selma trying to balance out her boobs with those shoulder pads? Let this not become a trend.

  40. Maya says:

    WHO LOOKED HOTTER??! Seriously, Celebitchy?! Why does it have to be a competition? They all look beautiful.

    Why do you hate other women so much? This is misogyny, plain and simple. Why do you perpetuate the dangerous idea that when it comes to two women, it’s always a zero sum game? The sad part is that you know this is completely misogynous but you just don’t give a f*ck because you profit off of it. Shame on you.

  41. Mi says:

    Charlize usually looks so good but there is sometyhing seriously wrong with her dress. It looks to thight oon top as people have said and the bottom looks ugh. Had it been a floor lenght dress i think it would have looked good. Noomi on the other hand looks gorgeous, I’m not even offended by the the sheernes of her gown which is something that I usually hate.

  42. meh says:

    Charlize’s dress looks like a budget figure skating costume.

  43. Nanea says:

    Doesn’t Mr Hayek own the biggest brands in fashion? Can’t a billionaire afford to pay a stylist for his wife? Does Salma own a mirror, and does she yet know how to use it?

    That said, while I like both Charlize and Noomi, I think both dresses are a miss, although nowhere in the vicinity of that stuffed glittery sausage.

  44. JudyK says:

    No one’s any prettier than Charlize, but I HATE dresses w/ slits.

    It’s just trying too hard and looks cheap.

  45. Crystal says:

    I don’t like Charlize’s dress much. The colour is stunning on her but the dress is just meh. Noomi looks great. Based on the dresses alone I’d go with Noomi. Overall beauty??…Charlize hands down. She’s just f*cking flawless, I just saw her on the Graham Norton Show and it made me like her even more.

  46. adrien says:

    noomi and charlize both look fabulous, but wtf is salma hayek wearing? her husband owns a luxury fashion empire and she looks like mother of the bride – vegas edition. no.

  47. Hm says:

    Noomi. Salma looks great too. Charlize is very attractive, an incredible actress, and great in interviews, but I don’t get the total worship of her looks. (Yes, still a zillion times better than I’ve ever looked.) The hair needs some toner, or lowlights, or something.

  48. F5 says:

    But the movie is painful.. OMG, died of boredom D:

  49. bellyache says:

    When I read that I thought – oh come on, it’s gotta be Charlize. But then I saw the pictures.. Noomi certainly holds her own. Noomi FTW!

  50. sup says:

    everyone looks bad

  51. Lauren says:

    Charlize is so beautiful, she almost looks inhuman. Brassy hair, easy fix. Her legs are perfect-life is indeed not fair.

  52. Alexa says:

    OMG!!! I just read one of you mention how old fassbender looks, so I looked up his age and I cant believe he is in his mid thirties!!!! I thought for sure he was in his mid fourties.
